Can not send syslog to RME on ip-sla-threshold

Unanswered Question
Nov 12th, 2009


I have LMS3.2

I make an IPM-operation "ping-threshold"

I also configure "ip sla syslog config"

See the config of my routeur(

ip sla monitor logging traps

ip sla monitor 7014

type echo protocol ipIcmpEcho

request-data-size 64

threshold 18

owner ipm|SMPRNW01

tag ping-threshold_

ip sla monitor reaction-configuration 7014 threshold-falling 16 threshold-type immediate action-type trapOnly

ip sla monitor schedule 7014 life forever start-time now ageout 3600

Note also that the syslog level is informational (6)

Do you know why the routeur never send IP-sla-threshold-violation-syslog to RME

Allthoug, the threshold is raised many times. See attach doc.

Is "ip sla syslog config" a valid config? I can't seem to find any reference it.

The documentaitons have the following to say regarding "ip sla monitor logging traps" and "action-type trapOnly" respectively:

"These traps are generated through the CISCO-SYSLOG-MIB, and enabled using the ip sla monitor logging traps global configuration mode command."

"trapOnly-Send an SNMP trap on both over and falling threshold violations."

So both refer to generating SNMP traps (which DFM of CiscoWorks LMS may process), while making it clear no syslog is sent (to RME, for example).

With "ip sla syslog config" it create a job wich try to configure 3 commands:

- rtr logging trap

- ip sla logging trap

- ip sla monitor logging trap

But they are in fact the same,they depend of the ios version.

And all 3 commands, when you look at the "cisco command lookup tools" refer to sending snmp trap, but never sending syslog message.

So I wonder if is is really possible to send syslog on Sla-threshold.

Bonjour Michel,

Did you ever manage to get the IPSLA device to send syslog messages?

If so, what do the SYSLOG messages look like? And what did you configure to trigger an automated action?

Thanks for your reply, but I cannot answer now.
